Hey Denver, Meet Madison.

It's time for a weekend getaway where travel time takes a back seat to adventure.

You can get from the mile-high city to the capital city in less than three hours, thanks to quick direct flights to Madison. Which means there’s more time to spend soaking up all fall has to offer in our capital city: fall colors, fall flavors and Badger fandom to name a few. And did we mention we love to throw a good party? We've got a full slate of festivals and fairs (only you can decide which Oktoberfest is best!), alongside all of the year-round things to do in Madison, Wisconsin.

You're just one direct flight away from seeing it for yourself. Find flights to Madison. >>

Lake. City. Lake. (Lake. Lake. Lake.)

Lake life is different here. It's for the adventurers and the relaxers. It's a natural escape just steps away from big-city vibes. Our numbers don't lie: Five local lakes. 270 acres of green space. More than 75 miles of bike paths. 200 miles of trails. 150 parks. 40 BCycle electric bike rental stations.

Lakes Mendota, Monona, Wingra, Kegonsa and Waubesa are the backdrops for everything we do. And trust us, we do a lot. Kayaking. Fishing. Sailing. Canoeing. Windsurfing. Nothing is off-limits.

Our food is hard to beat

Call us bold, but we believe it. Just look at our biggest and brightest. The Dane County Farmers’ Market is the largest producer-only market in the U.S. Four of our chefs have earned Best of the Midwest James Beard Awards. And we always pair our food with the best beverages. After all, we're the fourth best beer destination in the world. 

Don't let the prestige fool you. We still have fun with our food. With a list of locally-owned restaurants as long as ours, it's impossible to walk away hungry.
